CarmelFest fireworks show to be bigger, brighter


By Heather Collins

According to Jeff Worrell, fireworks chairman for CarmelFest, this year’s fireworks show will be bigger, brighter and more colorful than ever.

“It’s a totally reworked show,” Worrell said.

The show also has a new sponsor, Centier Bank, which has made a large investment into CarmelFest to help make this year’s fireworks show the best one yet. The Centier Bank CarmelFest Fireworks Celebration will be synchronized to music on WHJE Carmel High School radio 91.3 FM. CHS student Jackson Ammons helped put together the synchronized program for CarmelFest.

The fireworks show is nearly 25 minutes long. It will begin at 9:45 p.m. July 4 and can be viewed throughout the Carmel Arts & Design District, at the Carmel Gazebo or the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre. The fireworks will be launched just north of The Palladium and to the east of the Monon.

Worrell said the fireworks are a signature part of CarmelFest.

“It’s the grand finale of a day-and-a -half event,” he said. “Young and old come together with great anticipation to see a fantastic show.”

Residents can purchase spark buttons to show their patriotism and support for the event. The buttons are $5 at all of the CarmelFest stages. The spark buttons have been a CarmelFest tradition since the early 1990s.
